Missoula, MT (PRWEB) June 16, 2011
As has been reported by many news outlets, a Missoula father is asking for help after his wife delivered his daughter about three months early and died a couple days later from a bacterial infection. Kallin Sharbono needs our help as his daughter, Unique Marie, struggles to live.
Kallin is good friends with James Morrow, a technician at Missoula Jiffy Lube on Brooks Street. James has been friends with Kallin for nearly 8 years and when his good friend lost his wife Christina, he decided he had to do whatever he could to help his friend. That's when he sought the assistance from his employers, Harry Mead and Aaron Madsen of Montana Jiffy Lube.
"Our company is like a big family to us. When there is an opportunity for us to rally around something and help out a friend in need: our team steps up!", said Harry Mead, Vice President of Coast to Coast Lube Inc. "Kallin initially approached us to accept donations on the family's behalf at Jiffy Lube on Brooks Street. However, that didn't seem like enough. We are taking the extra steps to encourage larger donations to the family."
Company President Sean Porcher added "We have added a link to our corporate website: http://www.myjiffylube.com where people can make online contributions to the family. We have also posted the link on our facebook page." In addition, the company is offering a certificate for a complimentary Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change (valid at any Montana Jiffy Lube location) in exchange for a donation of $50 or more.
Porcher added: "Missoula has always done a great job of helping eachother out in times of need. In fact, the community has helped our Montana Jiffy Lube group be one of the top contributors to charitable causes in the Jiffy Lube network for the last several years". To make your donation stop by Jiffy Lube on Brooks Street or Cooper Street in Missoula.
